He let us ask questions, answered them, and never made is feel rushed and I left with a smile on my face!
Good physician. Knowledgeable willing to discuss current and past illness. Willing to discuss future plans to correct illness in his expertise
I have been to 5 multi disciplinary ALS Clinics including Mass General andUpstate (NY) University Med Ctr, The clinic at HCH is the most efficient and impressive in accommodation to the limitations of ALS patients from parking to bathrooms. I hope HCH will increase availability of clinical trials and compassionate use.
